Dang, all this talk of Popeye's chicken sandwiches is making me hungry.There I was, riding to work this morning when I was suddenly and viscously attacked. This is no SH!T! After decades of riding, I knew this would happen someday, and today was that day.
I was a mile from my expressway exit when this supernatural object leapt from the shoulder and hurled itself towards the bike. There was no time to do anything other than shut my eyes and brace for impact.
Luckily, the impact was slight yet it grabbed ahold off my clutch lever and would not release. I did not swerve nor panic brake as this action could have caused further damage if not death at 85 MPH. As it was, the bike maintained a steady state of travel and speed and I could still operate the lever despite the attacker's grip.
Once safely off the highway, I was able to photograph the attacker as proof of the mishap since I know without pictures, some will declare it never happened.
In the end, I am safe from all harm as is the bike which I know most of you are more concerned about though you would of course, ask about my well being first.

The attacker of course is a Popeyes Chicken sandwich, foil wrapper. Since I love eating Popeye's Chicken, I am wondering if this is a sign that I need to return soon as it has been several weeks since I visited a Popeye's. Or is this a chicken's spirit doing what it can to seek revenge on me for the tens of thousands of chickens I have partaken of over the years? I realize that spirits come in many shapes and sizes and most cannot do any physical harm but they can cause you a good start that may lead to some misfortunate happening...
The video was good until the last 3 minutes went dark....Did some more testing with the split screen today on my way in to work and then back home. Turning the screen brightness up all the way and putting the dark speedometer app on bottom worked pretty good in landscape, much more readable in the video. The horizontal might be best. Thoughts? , Other than my videos look pretty bad compared to @bpounds and @GARider. 😂
I hear ya. I just don’t have any that get up that early and can keep up.What you need is a riding buddy who is a good drone pilot.
